"Richard Harding was born in 1761 and died in 1828, according to his headstone. I’ve spoken with some who believe he was actually born in 1758.
According to one source, Richard came to the colonies either during or right before the Revolutionary War as a British recruiter, but he then switched loyalties and fought for the colonies. He served as a Private in the Continental Line.
He married Rachel Crepell (some sources indicate Crable, Crebell, Crabbe or Crabbs) in Frederick, MD on May 28, 1790."
According to "Maryland, Marriages, 1666-1970" Richard [Hardy] Hardin and Rachel Crepel were married in the German Reformed Church in Frederick, Maryland.
